2002 Joan D’Anguera Montsant Finca L’Argata – Spain, Catalunya, Tarragona, Montsant (5/16/2006)
40% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Granacha, 10% Mazuela – 14 months French and US oak
Deep reddish purple in color. The nose is alive with evolving aromas, of anise, cassis, loamy earth, cocoa, light green pepper, and minerals. Rich and dense in the mouth with cassis, blackberry, light green pepper and pencil lead. A bit out of balance, maybe it needs some time.

As time passed, they expanded their focus to include Portugal, whereby sharing the heart and soul of Iberian food, wine and culture.
